Dubbed “Lady Jazz!” by Audix Microphones, Jordan is consistently praised for her poise, elegance and soulful articulation. Jazz critic Sandy Ingram says She's a singer with poise and pizzazz, with a voice and an appealing look that bring to mind Carmen McRae
and Lena Horne
." Stephanie's lyrical style has also been compared to her mentor Shirley Horn
, and that of Diana Krall
while other critics say it's more like living legend Nancy Wilson
One reviewer of her Lena Horne tribute album states, “Stephanie Jordan is an anachronism in jazz. Her sound and style are either wonderful rhythms of the future of jazz, or she is definitely a clone of the past. This CD has it all. Ms. Jordan has every attribute of a great jazz singer. Her voice, diction , phrasing and selection of songs are marvelous. Her band is as good as any I have heard. She deserves wide recognition.”
All About Jazz writes, Her (Stephanie Jordan) tone is crisp, perfect, but not in that polished way that sounds like an opera singer attempting jazz. She is more like a master of technique, yet with plenty of soul."
Stephanie has performed worldwide including the Kennedy Center, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Marian's Jazzroom in Bern Switzerland, Duke Ellington
Jazz Festival in Washington, D.C., and in the presence of the President and First Lady Michelle Obama at the Washington Convention Center. Jordan sang at the inaugural International Jazz Day presented by UNESCO which was celebrated by millions worldwide. Just as she had a decade ago at Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Stephanie Jordan Big helped frame the moment of the evening at The Power of Community: Katrina 10 Commemoration" with her performance of classic tune Home" from the Broadway musical The Wiz" during the commemoration".
Recognized internationally, the Sud Ouest French publication calls her unbelievably superb." The Washingtonian Magazine labeled her JAZZHOT."
